My Husband and I bought a old mobile home to live in while we build our new home. It has a bad leak in the back of the home so bad that we are going to have to replace the siding but we cannot figure out where the water is coming from. But it is from rain, there is no plumbing in that area. But it is under a window. But is not above the window and it doesn't appear to leak from the inside of the wall or inside the window. (It has storm windows)We have already put on a new roof so I don't think it is from the roof. Any ideas???

I once had a wall leak that I couldn't find. Water came out the inside of the wall around the electrical outlet, several feet below the window when heavy storms blew from one direction. The solution was to get my wife on a ladder on the inside, and me on a ladder on the outside with a waterhose. I sprayed until she could observe the leak. We found the spot. It was a half-round window in which the glass was not sealed to the wood frame.
Maybe this method will help you pinpoint your leak.
